Interview Skills Training

Appraisal skills training


When done well, appraisals can be hugely beneficial for both managers and staff members.  They offer protected time to review performance, plan for the coming year and ensure that both parties are getting their needs met.

But like so many management tools we often expect managers to simply understand the appraisal cycle and know how to prepare for and lead an effective appraisal conversation.

Effective appraisals have a significant positive impact on employee satisfaction and motivation, they build relationships and ensure that the vision for the future is shared.  Our fast-paced and highly interactive Essential Appraisal skills for managers workshop explores the why, when and how of appraisals.

If you’re looking for training to support staff to prepare for their appraisals, please contact us.
